Reinstatement of the caretaker government will facilitate an unbiased election, allowing the Bangladesh Nationalist Party to come back into power and eliminating the human rights violations perpetrated by the Awami League regime.
An unbiased election will restore democracy in Bangladesh, so the people can elect the officials that will represent them and live without fear of genocide and violence.
“Zahid F. Sarder Saddi is a man who is motivated by the need for change. He says it best himself, stating: “The fight for peace and betterment is ingrained in my blood.”
Originally from Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saddi is a prominent Bangladeshi political activist and humanitarian. He served as a Foreign Advisor to the three-time Prime Minister of Bangladesh, the Honorable Begum Khaleda Zia. He was also appointed as a Special Envoy to the Bangladesh Nationalist Party–BNP, and was nominated as a member of the Bangladesh Parliament Pirojpur-1 constituency despite not campaigning for the position.
Saddi’s political career has been augmented by his access to a top-quality Western education; he holds multiple degrees from Penn State University. Currently, he is politically exiled from Bangladesh as a result of the current oppressive regime and his beliefs, is still an active participant in Bangladeshi politics from a distance. He has spoken in panels held by the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, the Woodrow Wilson Center, Human Rights Watch, Democracy International, and the Prestigious Heritage Foundation, to name a few.
When he’s not in Washington, D.C. or New York engaging in political activism, he lives in Florida with his wife Lyudmila, a Doctor of Internal Medicine, and their sons William & Edward.
